Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article aims to bridge the gap between history and archaeology by linking the methodological and theoretical developments of both scientific disciplines. This is done by tracing general societal trends and developments within both disciplines, divided into five periods, from the professionalization of the sciences in the nineteenth century, up to the present day. The result will hopefully offer practitioners of both disciplines an insight into the others' intellectual framework, and thereby foster better understanding and opportunities for future cooperation.
